Do you have your spot by the sea? The place you love to return to? Mine is a little off the beaten path, north of Pacific Beach. I try to get there each time I come to San Diego. It's a place I can usually find parking....and where I can see the sea, and hear the waves. At night - it's just incredible as there are spotlights up on the hill that cast light down on to the beach, so I feel very safe going even after dark.
To me, personally, there is nothing on earth like sitting and listening to the sound of the ocean waves. I can easily jump into the right side of my brain and let the sounds take over my soul and never leave. It's probably a real good thing that I don't live within listening distance of the ocean - I'd never get a thing done!
If you don't have a spot by the sea, find one! It's just great!
